Reaction: Clean Air Coalition calls for environmental action after DOH report.


Tonawanda News — The CAC is demanding agencies enforce EPA regulations at Tonawanda Coke and are also asking DEC Commissioner Joe Martens to honor his promise and visit the area’s sick residents by March 31. 

Residents will also present their years-worth of community-based research results at the meeting.

Attendees will be able to look at the results of the research and vote on what they think are the top five environmental concerns.

“The results will direct our work for the future and hopefully bring more resources into the town to bring down those risks,” Newberry said.
